NEUROLOGIC MUSIC THERAPY (NMT) is defined as the therapeutic application of music to cognitive, sensory, and motor dysfunctions due to neurologic differences of the human nervous system. NMT is based on a neuroscience model of music perception and production and the influence of music on non-musical brain and behavior functions. -(Thaut, 2005)
In order to become a Board Certified Music Therapist, completion of at least a Bachelor's degree in music therapy, completion of a 6-month clinical internship, and successful completion of the national certification exam are required to receive the MT-BC credentials.
